    Are your Rapture irons the J model? Curious about how you find them compared to the S55, especially distance wise.

    Back on the Aldila train. I would hit one crazy block every 12 holes or so for some reason with Obans ... and a block NEVER happens for me



    If you like a stiff driver that kicks like a mule. Try the NL in my sig ... amazing shaft in the 10* LST head ( for my swing speed anyways ... ymmv )



    Took some new lines on doglegs at the "home course" down here over the last few days, good times

    Yes, you need to find the right head for spin. Best feel of any shaft, a big kick



    Close 2nd is RIP Beta ... which I dropped into a 3w

    Ahhh, I see. I don't tend to do well with shafts that kick a lot. I like to feel like I'm swinging a 2x4

    Driver shaft shootout at PING Canada today while I waited for some clubs to be flattened



    Driver speed: 102-3 ish Carry: mid 250's Launch: 12* Run out mid 280's



    The winner was the Oban Revenge 65x (electronically anyways)



    Runner Ups: Oban Purple 55x, Blueboard 53x, Aldila NL 60x



    I need to work back to 108-109 where I was 18 months ago (carrying it low 270's). Instructor and I targeting 111 once this elbow comes fully around.



    I can still swing my 3w at 100 ... so some driver mechanics work to do. 8 iron carry has dropped from 168 to 160. Age and injuries !!! CURSES !

    I'm also going to toss some 95g shafts in my Rapture J-spec five and six irons and see how those perform



    I think the J-spec 3 and 4 irons are permanently benched. The Apex 4h and 20* heavenwood are just too easy to hit

    No the J spec is on the left. The J spec's have stronger lofts and less offset. They are great long irons to partner with modern USA Ping short irons. Hot Ti face and big tungsten plug in toe + plus the old Ping finish that never wears out



    I have some Jspec Rapture V1 three and four iron heads to offload and also a Rapture J v2 head to offload FWIW

    Interesting, I always thought the Japanese preferred more offset, though I can understand the stronger lofts.

    Callaway gave me a free new v2 head

    it was swingweighting e0 ... with the same Apache shaft ... so I’ve ordered some lighter weights

    the gen 1 Apex 5h was at d8 ... which was ideal
